2017 Photos Generously Provided by Michele Buono Photography
The 7th Annual Shop With A Cop held on December 14, 2017 was an enormous success! Quakertown Borough and Richland Township want to thank our sponsors for providing 100 children with $150 Walmart gift cards, a backpack full of supplies, their families a $100 Giant gift card, and a $100 Walmart gift card! A special Thank You to Pennridge Regional, Dublin Borough and Springfield Township Police for assisting in the event this year! We truly appreciate your participation.
Shop with a Cop is a national program pairing police officers with children to afford them a better Christmas. The program allows children to view police officers in a different atmosphere to promote positive relationships.
This program is geared toward Quakertown School District children at the elementary levels. The children are faced with life challenges such as a parent losing a job, homelessness, military deployment, economic shortcomings, and other hardships.
Shop With A Cop is funded through generous donations in our own community from private sponsors to our local businesses. Volunteers from the community help with gift wrapping, hosting, and registration. Each child is allotted a monetary gift card to purchase gifts for themselves and family members to allow for an enjoyable holiday. Quakertown and Richland police officers volunteer their own time to support the program.
The first Shop With A Cop program was started in December 2011 by Officer Lee –Quakertown Borough and Officer Ryan Naugle – Richland Township Police Department. The program originally started with 15 children and has increased to 100 children in 2017, with each child given a $150 Walmart gift card and a $100 Giant family gift card for a holiday dinner.
Shop With A Cop was developed to help make the holidays brighter for disadvantaged families in the Quakertown School District. But we can't do it without support from you! Donation forms are available in Quakertown Borough Hall or online where ever you see Shop With A Cop!
Special Thanks to our 2017 Sponsors!
